Detroit Lions waive DT Khyri Thornton


Lions waive DT Khyri Thornton on Tuesday before the Thanksgiving game. This is a little surprising on the short week. Thornton came off of a 10 snap performance vs. the Bears. He came off a six game drug suspension to play in 4 games making 4 tackles. The Lions will probably promote DT Christian Ringo off the practice squad.

Here is a tribute:

23 games 6 starts 27 tackles 1 sack
Good luck Khyri
